Pinocchio

Written by

 A wonderful version of this well-known children’s story. Geppetto, the wood carver, longs for a son, but the Star Fairy will only grant his wish on the condition that his puppet Pinocchio proves to be worthy and good.

Old Nick is determined that this should not happen. Adventures take the plot to Stromboli’s Circus to meet clowns Macaroni and Spaghetti, then onto the sea and inside a whale! Finally the guardian conscience, Jimminy Cricket, guides everyone to a happy ending – of course!

This edition is in the form of a pantomime with suggested optional musical interludes not provided with this script.
